By Addison Independent



Brent Curtis, public outreach coordinator for the Vermont Agency of Transportation, late last week noted the following Bristol-area road conditions for the week of May 13.

•  Work on Route 116 from Middlebury through Bristol to Starksboro will see workers installing pavement marking and doing bridge joint work this week. Travelers should expect alternating one-lane traffic and slower speeds that will create some delays.

•  Lincoln Gap is still closed for the winter season.
